PPL is still taking precautions to limit in-person interactions and on-site verifications. Please remember that we require that you and your crew wear a non-surgical or homemade mask when working in situations on our behalf.
Data logger shipping: During the coronavirus pandemic, we may be sending data loggers to customers/contractors that we would normally install on-site. For our customers’ safety and peace of mind, data loggers will be sanitized before packaging and mailing. They will be shipped at no cost to customers, and all return shipments will be discussed with each customer/contractor at the end of the logging period. We will include an insert in the package that details how to send the equipment back in a safe manner.
For guidelines and updates as the coronavirus pandemic evolves, please visit our Coronavirus Resources webpage.
Welcome to program year 12!
Program year (PY12) began on June 1, and we thank you for continuing to support the PPL Business Energy Efficiency Program to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals.
Program measures and incentives will remain the same. Visit our Resources & Tools webpage to download flyers, case studies and FAQs.
Pre-approval is still required on all projects. Pre-approval means that a project application must be submitted in good order and receive a pre-approval letter before construction begins.
Government, Non-profit and Education sectors will continue to be waitlisted through PY12.
Direct Discount Program
The Direct Discount Program continues to offer $0.13/kWh saved annually on eligible prescriptive projects and $0.14/kWh on custom projects, up to 80 percent of the project cost.
The program manual, customer agreement and FAQ sheet have been updated on the
website for PY20.
